The Suzuki Gixxer SF is the full faired version of the highly popular and acclaimed naked street Gixxer. It is mainly targeted at a young audience those looking for a stylish commuter motorcycle which can double up as a tourer. It is powered by 154.9 cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air cooled SOHC 2-valve engine. The engine used in the bike is average and can produces a maximum power of 14.8 PS at 8000 rpm and maximum torque of 14 NM at 6000 rpm. It is mated with a manual 5-speed gearbox.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF carries forward the sculpted fuel tank and the rear panels from the naked bike. The body comes with more stylish and sporty looks with its all new fully covered front and side looks. This fairing has been styled to resemble the bigger GSX-R superbikes and, the company claims, has been aerodynamically shaped to improve the motorcycle’s touring capabilities. The SF is built on a single downtube frame, which is also used in its naked sibling.
It houses a compact, all digital instrument cluster that includes speedometer, odometer, two trip meter, gear indicator and fuel level meter. The single piece seat gives the rider and pillion enough space to adjust themselves for a comfortable long-distance ride. But the seat cushion is a bit stiff. The pillion rider sits higher too which provides a good view of the road.
The engine is super refined and delivers linear performance. The acceleration is brisk and the engine is perfect for city commuting. The single downtube frame results in perfect handling. The suspension is tuned to have a right balance between performance and comfort. The Gixxer SF features the SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology to deliver improved fuel economy. It equips twin port exhaust that delivers a throaty exhaust note.
The Suzuki Gixxer SF is equipped with telescopic forks at the front and mono-shock suspension at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 266 mm disc at front and 220 mm disc at rear. The Gixxer SF is an affordable motorcycle in the 150cc segment. The refine engine makes it a good package and the bike is comfortable to ride in city condition.
